He calls them "careless people" because they do not care to help Nick especially now that he needs it for the funeral.

Nick calls Tom and Daisy "careless people" because they dont care about the consequences of their actions. Daisy flirts with Gatsby but still loves Tom. and Tom physically abuses Myrtle by punching her in the face and by cheating on Daisy. Tom and Daisy both are very careless and greedy people.

Nick Boutoures said...

I agree with Carolina. They are careless because they did not call about Gatsby. They did not show an effort to help out with the funeral plans or even getting people to go to the funeral. Nick needs the help because he is planning and running the whole funeral prosession himself.

Nick calls Tom and Daisy careless people becuse they dont really take caare of teir stuff. Also they dont really keep it that much of a secret that they are seeing other peole, especially Tom.

Tom and Daisy, according to Nick, were careless people simply because they cared about nothing. their marriage had just been shown to be a fraud but they just ignore it like it never happened. Daisy had killed the woman Tom had cheated with yet they had done nothing about it. And when Gatsby receives the ultimate punishment for this crime they do not even acknowledge the tragedy. Whenever something happens with Tom and daisy they just move on with out a care. They continue their meaningless lives with their money while they leave a trail of destruction behind them.

Nick calls Tom and Daisy "careless people" because when Nick needed them the most, they couldn't help him out. Even though Daisy still had feelings for Tom, she couldn't take the time to help Nick. They did not show any sympathy for Nick which makes them selfish, careless people.

Nick calls them careless people because they were selfish. they never helped with the funeral

I a gree compeltely with Dan. Tom and Daisy do everything they do just for the sake of doing it. They do nothing for the other person and nothing for the good will. They take going with the flow to the next level.

Nick calls Tom and Daisy careless people because they abandoned him when he really needed them. They didnt help with anything pertaining to the funeral, and they were just acting selfish.

Lisa Russell said...

Nick calls Tom and Daisy "careless people" because they don't care about anybody except themselves. For example, they only think of what is going on in their lives at the moment, rather than helping Nick with the funeral and other importnat things.

Nick calls Tom and Daisy "careless people" because they are. They just do not care about anything. Gatsby dies and they dont even call, Daisy kills the woman Tom was having an affair with, nothing happens. Nick calls them careless people because they truly are careless people.

Nick thinks they are careless people because they do things without being ready to accept the outcome. Daisy flirting with Gatsby is an event that helped lead up to his death yet she disappears after with tom the man she was "cheating" on yet no-one seems to care about what hapened.

Nick calls Tom and Daisy careless people because all they think about is themselves, and dont care if their actions hurt other people.For example how they both cheated on eachother, they didnt care who they hurt along the way, they were just concerned with themselves. Also, after Gatsby died, Nick needed them and they were not there for him. He tried to get a hold of them, but they went away and didnt tell anyone where they were going. Daisy and Tom ran away from their problems, Daisy was the one who hit Myrtile and she didnt own up to it, just like Tom didnt confess to Wilson and let him think that Myrtile was having an affair with Gatsby. Both of their lies ended Gatsby's life and it seemed to not even effect them.
